share while they were waiting for that i5 to come out. and citi research has downgraded apple from a hold to a buy. you can see there just below $500. >>> also, the national association for business economics growth in 2013 to come in at 2.1% after growing by 2.2% in 2012. that would continue the same tepid growth that the country has seen since the recession ended back in mid 2009. >>> and the nation is mourning the horrific event of friday in newtown, connecticut. president obama spoke last night about change. >> we can't kol rate this any more. these tragedies must end. and to end them, we must change. we will be told that the causes of such violence are complex, and that is true. no single law, no set of laws can eliminate evil from the world or event every senseless act of violence in our society. >>> and earlier in the day, new york city mayor michael bloomberg called on the president to lead the nation on the issue of gun control. >> it's time for the president, i think, to stand up and lead and tell this country what we should do. not go to congress and say, what you guys w

day in inner city neighborhoods, a child gets shot. and it doesn't make the news. that's in every one of those neighborhoods. we never talk about it. i think this is bringing it to our attention because it's neighborhoods like we live in, right? and that bothers me that suddenly society becomes gripped when you have a much bigger ongoing tragedy. i think that says something about our mentality. and you know, i actually think that's why we have a constitution. because, it's when you have tragedies, and when emotion is running high, that you actually need a break to step back from the emotion and think about what's going on. >> wait a second. some of the things that have been proposed have been simply bringing back a ban on assault rifles that was brought here in 1994. >> which the justice department studied and found it was ineffective. you know, sure if we want to do it, that's fine. it passed the constitutional test. but, i don't think that is going to solve our problem. >> it may not solve the problem. it may not have stopped this situation. but it would certainly have some impact.
